Dassault Aviation has announced that the Falcon 8X has received certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

The certification had been anticipated, and certification from the Federal Aviation Administration is due to be issued shortly.
 
First deliveries of the aircraft are due at the beginning of the fourth quarter of this year, as announced when the aircraft was launched in May 2014.
 
“Not only did we develop a Falcon which is exactly in line with the needs of our customers in terms of range, comfort and operational flexibility, but we also did so in record time and with an unparalleled process to ensure aircraft reliability and maturity”, said Eric Trappier, Dassault Aviation, chairman and CEO.
 
The 26th Falcon 8X is in its final assembly in the Mérignac facility, whilst the twelfth is in cabin outfitting in the Little Rock facility.
